VINTAGE TEA: This event was organised by Glynis Brook and Christine Armitage-Hinks, with added input from Sue Caffyn and a supporting team to raise funds for a memorial window to dedicate as a thank you to a lovely, talented, caring person who is sadly missed. Caroline lived in the village for many years with her first husband and their children. She was a teacher at Park Mead and a member of the Dicker Village Hall Committee. Between them, the family raised significant funds for Macmillan through many different types of events. The Village Hall and Holy Trinity Church also benefited from funds raised by separate fun events. The Vintage Tea raised enough for the window and it was installed on August 18 with members of the family and a number of the residents who made it possible in attendance.
